czech characters displayed incorrectly

P: 1
hello everybody

i've been reading this forum for a long time, but seeing as i always found the answer to my problems i never bothered posting. This is not the case for the problem i have now: i am translating a php application in czech, and i can't get the characters to be displayed correctly.

If i visit a czech site, i can see all characters fine, and if i paste any text into my files and run them on my local web server, they get turned into gobbledygook..

I checked doctype declarations, language settings, I tried to use both UTF-8 and ISO-8859-2 for the encoding. Nothing.
I have all the charsets specified in my apache so that should not be the problem, although i don't know where else to look at, seeing as internet pages work well and local files don't...

Any idea anybody?

ps the app is built in php but i am having problems with plan html here so i'd exclude any php problem

thank you very much
Joe
